So I was looking at drum machines and they seem to not really do what I need. I want something very standalone not reliant on custom vsts/midi based. So I looked at the akai mpcs and they are either really expensive, I want to spend max £200, or really reliant on midi again; hence thinking I need a sampler!
And then I watched this:
And I'd say that main sampler he's using is exactly what I'm after, I don't know what it is tho.
I basically want to just be able to send my own custom samples onto an internal memory on this thing and then trigger and mainpulate as you would in Ableton Sampler. So it's standalone and I'd simply record in to Ableton, like it's an external synth or something.
